Surprise engagement stuns Emmerdale but it's marred by devastating secret | The Sun

ONE couple decide to take their relationship to the next level during an upcoming trip to the Dales.

But happiness is a long way away as a horrific murder rocks Emmerdale, leaving one resident to search for answers.

ITV viewers suspected Sam Dingle (played by James Hooton) would be taking action after finding out his beloved wife Lydia (Karen Blick) was raped by Craig Reed (Ben Addis).

Lydia and Craig share a heavy history together and rekindled a bond upon his initial arrival in the eponymous village.

However, after some friendly moments, it became clear Craig was wanting more from a married Lydia.

Caught up in the chemistry, Lydia knew it was time she needed to let Craig down gently after they nearly kissed.

But in heart-breaking scenes, Craig didn't take "no" for an answer and raped Lydia, leaving her a shell of her former self.

In scenes airing next week, things take a murderous turn when Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle) finds Craig's lifeless and bloodied body on the Home Farm estate, where Lydia works.

The cleaner goes on the hunt for answers, convinced this can't be the work of another serial killer in the village.

But during her quest, she's shocked to find out that one couple have decided it was time for them to make a serious commitment and get married.
